DAVID & NADIA
PAARDEBERG • SWARTLAND
David and Nadia Sadie met while studying – he, viticulture and oenology; she, soil science and viticulture. They were married in 2009 and made their first wine a year later while still employed by their respective former employers. It took another three years before David resigned, with Nadia joining him permanently on Paardebosch Farm at the beginning of 2016. More than half the grapes they work with come from the farm and the rest is sourced within the Swartland. Part of the mix too are their energetic boys, Wilhelm and Malan, and a tan Staffordshire Bull Terrier named Tarzan.
